Ecolighten is proud to collaborate with BC Hydro on a recent article in their Smarter Homes newsletter to support 'Architects & Builders' with information on the benefits of integrated Home Performance Design and green building. Titled: "Style & Comfort: the Value of Integrated Design", the article discusses how bringing energy and mechanical decisions upfront ensures that functional and aesthetic solutions are balanced to maximum benefit in new home construction.
Some of the builder, architect and homeowner benefits explored in the article include:
- Avoiding budget overruns and project delays
- Minimizing construction surprises
- Ability to access apples-to-apples mechanical quotations
- Ultimately a satisfied homeowner with a comfortable, healthy and energy-efficient home
